SATURDAY
The Sexual Side Effects

The Atlanta alt-rock outfit is gaining momentum and buzz both around Atlanta and farther afield after a successful trek up the East Coast. This homecoming show is a celebration of the release of the band’s debut four-song EP, “High Maintenance,” a disc that has already spawned videos for the songs “All She’ll Ever Hurt” and “Aurora.” The latter is a propulsive bit of atmospheric glam, brimming with ringing guitars and yearning vocals, and one of the catchiest songs released by a local band in recent memory. Check out the videos and the songs on the band’s website and at iTunes.
9 p.m. Feb. 11. $10. The Masquerade, 695 North Ave. N.E., Atlanta. 404-577-8178.
